Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
When your brother arrives at the police custody centre, he will as part of the booking in process be offered free and independent legal advice. That means he will be able to see the dirt solicitor who would represent him for free.
The duty solicitor is not part of the police we are completely independent form the police, they just happen to cover custody cases for those arrested and want a free solicitor.
As for the house being searched, that would depend on the reason for the arrest.
Sorry, would not have access to that sort of information. He would have been taken to the nearest local police custody centre for your police force.
